Avro|ko

New York, US

2003

A bar-restaurant interior in which every sense is addressed and satisfied with meticulous detail and a genuinely global design approach. Owned and run by the designers. There is no detail which has not been thought through and integrated into a powerful and seductive whole. Every texture, surface, color and reveal adds to the grammar of the experience which is topped off with some of the finest cocktails in New York.  

Structure

The attention to detail also extends to items  beyond the venue such as cards, stationery, matchbooks etc. Each item is resonant with the space's identity and leaves the building like a small but potent seed.
